Album di Famiglia is a highly modern label, a minimalist, haut de gamme (top of the line) collection entirely made in Italy. It is rich in design value and dedicated to children, women and men. Album clothes are characterised by their almost geometric shapes, free from unnecessary frills, which come in a sophisticated range of dark, dusty colours, and made of high-quality materials.
The designer Monica Rusconi completed her classical studies and then attended the European Institute of Design in Milan obtaining a diploma in Graphic Design and Visual Communication. After a brief spell at a kids’ clothing firm, in 1990 she was awarded the “Young Fashion Design Award” by Pitti Bimbo and started working as a free-lance designer.
Monica has worked for many years in Paris collaborating with other kids’ apparel designers and designing collections for Italian and European trademarks.
A happy event, the birth of her son, Pietro, and her long professional experience, led in June 2000 to the creation of Album di Famiglia, a small yet innovative collection initially centred on newborn babies.
